Health Care Plan Is Not About 'Health' or 'Caring'




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on FOX News Channel

America has the best health care system in the world. Is it perfect? No. But it's still the best. Yet we're about to throw it all away in favor of... government-run health care.

But here's the one thing: The Democrats' latest health care plan has nothing to do with "health" or "caring" and everything to do with power and control.

"But Glenn, there are like 14 quadrillion people without health insurance. And besides, it's free!"

Actually the plan House Democrats unveiled Tuesday will cost $1 trillion over 10 years, but only 17 percent of the spending comes in the first five years, while 83 percent comes in the second five years. Once everything finally has kicked in, the plan will cost more than double — $230 billion per year — with the cost rising each year.

Where will the government get the money to pay for this massive "free" program? Because remember, as the president said when interviewed during the All-Star Game Monday night, "We are out of money"

If you guessed "the rich," you are a winner!

If you are "rich" or are employed by "the rich" or are looking to gain employment from someone who is "rich," then you are going to be the loser — a big fat loser.

The party who hates being called "socialist" is proposing to fund government care with a 5.4 percent surtax on those making over $1 million a year, with gradual taxes starting at incomes of $280,000 a year.

Taxing the rich to give poor people "free" health care? Sounds like socialism to me... but I didn't go to Harvard.

But wait, there's more! That huge tax hike only funds part of the plan. The rest is coming from — and I'm going to try and say this with a straight face — the expected windfall of savings the government will achieve.

Really? Our government? The one who has racked up an $11.5 trillion debt will fund a massive new program on "savings"?

Right. They claim they'll be able to beat those evil insurance companies in efficiency because they don't have to care about profits or paying bloated CEO salaries. Only one problem: Health insurance profits account for a measly 0.6 percent of health care costs.

So, for every dollar spent on health care 0.6 percent goes towards health insurance costs.

And those evil CEOs account for 0.0005 percent of costs. So for every dollar spent on health care, 0.0005 percent goes towards that greedy CEO. Can you believe this guy?

Clearly the numbers don't add up. It defies common sense. It's because this bill isn't about getting little Sally Muchenfuch medicine for her elbow-warts and it isn't about making every chubby American a beanpole.

It's about power and control over you.

If this bill passes, government would control and additional 1/6th of the economy. Combine that with the industries they've already infiltrated — namely the banks and the auto industry — and the ones they are trying to infiltrate — like the energy industry — and you have something that looks nothing like America.

What are we doing? I don't want to be like the European Union or Canada. I want America to be America: Where the people run the show — that's what makes us great. When we're run by the government, we are anything but the land of the free.

Besides, if we become like Canada or the E.U., where will all of their citizens come when they need that difficult or elusive medical treatment they can't get in their own crappy country!

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
